Tel: +353 71-9165108 Email: Website: WWW.COOPERSHILL.COM

If you are looking for a genuine, romantic, grand Irish country house with comfort, character and sublime cooking, then you are going to love Coopershill in Co. Sligo. Coopershill has been in the O’Hara family since it was built in 1774 and they have been welcoming and entertaining guests for the last 244 years.

A stunning mile-long avenue crossing the River Unshin and winding through ancient woods and deer pastures on the 500-acre Private Estate bring you to this fabulous Georgian mansion. Warm hospitality, original antiques, spacious bedrooms and views from every window create an oasis of peace, quiet and relaxation.

Dinner is a highlight, served at candlelit tables set with family silver and crystal. With their own vegetable and fruit gardens, most of the vegetables come out of the ground a few metres from the dining room! The highest quality produce available is sourced in the region with the reward being amazing flavours.

Located by the Wild Atlantic Way, it’s the perfect base for exploring WB Yeats country, mountains, lakes and megalithic ruins along with Championship golf courses, beaches and fishing just a short drive away.

This country house is perfect for couples on a romantic break. Alternatively, rent the whole house fully catered with family and friends for an unforgettable private house party.
